    Just wanted to give everyone a heads up - if you're having or thinking of having a Palace Resorts wedding, their preferred DJ is VERY expensive.  Much more than the other DJ's who brides on this site rave about.  I'm using DJ Mannia for $900 for 4 hours and their DJ, J&S Audio Visual is $1500 for the same thing.
    Just beware that you should try to get permission to use outside vendors at the very beginning of your booking process.

          Thanks for the heads up.  I'm a 12' Bride and have been in contact with DJ Mannia.  Thanks again

            After doing a lot of research, ALL of their "preferred" vendors are very expensive.  The decor company they wanted me to use is DOUBLE, yes DOUBLE THE PRICE of everyone else!  Beware!

              I checked with my WC at Aventura and she said that we have to use their preferred DJ.  So I booked J&S and they have been very accommodating so far.

                Your WC is lying to you.  You don't HAVE to use any of their preferred vendors.  If they can get you to use them, they make more money, because they get a kick back.  I had it specifically written into my contract that I could use whoever I wanted.

                  Well it was written in my contract that they are no outside vendors allowed.  So, apparently things can differ between the palace resorts.

                    Nope, it's the same for all the Palace Resorts.  Tt was written in my contact that there are no outside vendors allowed too.  You have to request that you contracts states you can use whoever you want.  That's how they take advantage of brides unfortunately.  I personally think Palace Resorts does a TERRIBLE job with their weddings. I've been working with them for 9 months and I don't know how they stay in business.
                    A few other brides on here gave the huge heads up to get outside vendor clause in the contract or you end up spending a lot more money.  You can obviously use theirs, just trying to help brides who don't want to get ripped off.
